Born in Italy, Swami Nirvanananda Saraswati travels the globe carrying only his guitar, harmonium and a daypack. A follower of Paramahnsa Yogananda, he is a member of India’s very ancient Dashnami Vedanta Order of monks. Artfully blending eastern and western elements, Swamiji’s extraordinary talent and sweet songs of devotion open the heart and rouse the soul. These are the pure sounds of a pure heart. Recorded live, this CD captures the energy and spontaneity of traditional call/response kirtan’s beautiful and passionate offering to the Divine.
